"Health care should be available to all people. I'm not sure if the current bill will work, but I hope so." Photos by Diana Jorgenson Portola student Katherine Fish also thought health care should be improved. Students watch movies in social studies, she said, and they see just how easy it is for people to get hurt, and then not be able to get help. Shyanne Meza Greenville Junior Senior High School S~udent Special to Feather Publishing It was a busy, eventful morning for the 2009 Career Fair Tuesday, Dec. 15, at the Greenville High School gymnasium. Presenters arrived excit- ed and ready to talk about career opportunities. There were 24 presenters in attendance, from the Forest Service to the Marines and Army, a few colleges, and several state and local businesses, agen- cies and organizations. Students from Greenville and Chester High schools attended. The seventh- through tenth-grade students from both schools visited presen- ters and asked many ques- "tions about their different jobs. The Greenville upper- classmen were interviewed by presenters of their choice and given pointers on what to expect in real interviews by employers. The Career Fair was scheduled, to provide infor- mation to students about the many different types of careers that are out there, and for the older students to help them think about possi- ble careers for their futures. It was a joint effort by both the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment and the school to organize the fair and to manage the many students that were going from booth to booth in a small-group rotation format. Many said this career fair was a success. "I found out a lot of infor- mation about colleges, and found the one that I want to go to," said Greenville High School Junior Crystal Singletary. Staff and faculty mem- bers and directors of the Sierra Institute and Greenville High School expressed their thanks to all the following businesses, colleges, and organizations that attended: Army Corps of Engineers, Cal Fire, Cal Trans, California Conservation Corps, California Department of Fish and Game, Collins Pine Company, Feather River Land Trust, National Park Service, Plumas National Forest, Sierra Pacific Industries, UC Cooperative Extension, W.M. Beaty and Associates, Feather River College, Lassen College, University of Nevada Reno, Feather Publishing Company, California Highway Patrol, Plumas Bank, Plumas Rural Services, Plumas County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marine and Army recruiters, and everyone else who helped organize the career fair. Chester students eat lunch in the gym after exploring possible careers, and they talk with enthu- siasm about all the different jobs available. "We were very impressed," said one. "It was very nice," said another with a smile and a laugh. "But next time it needs to be in Chester." Young Greenville students James Martinez and Dominic Potts liked the Feather Publishing booth the best, 1;hey said. They liked to know about local careers related to their interests and close to their families. Photos by Alicia Knadler Has someone ever approached you out of the blue and paid you a really nice compliment? That is exactly what members of the Quincy High School Service Club did with their Compliment Project. For several hours Safeway customers were seen heading for their cars with smiles on their faces after students offered up some really nice compliments. In a simple way, these students spread a little light and happiness to others.
